Show Summary

FOX Broadcasting teamed with Steven Spielberg, Peter Chernin, Brannon Braga, Rene Echevarria and Aaron Kaplan to bring a new series, Terra Nova. In the year 2149, the planet Earth is a disaster, and most of the plant and animal life has become extinct. Scientists can't reverse the damage, but have found a way to travel back to prehistoric times to save the human race.

Among the Tenth Pilgrimage of settlers in Terra Nova is the Shannon family. Jim Shannon, played by Jason O'Mara, is a loving father with secrets in his past. His wife, Elisabeth, is a trauma surgeon who has been recruited to join Terra Nova's medical team. Their three children join them on this journey: Josh is 17 and is not happy about leaving the life he knows. Maddy is 15 and is looking forward to a new life and a chance to make changes. Zoe is 5, and there is a secret involving her that could create problems for the Shannon family.

Commander Nathaniel Taylor warns the new arrivals of the dangers that surround them in Terra Nova. There are not only dinosaurs, but other settlers who have left the colony to start their own. The outcast colony is led by Mira, who left because she disagreed with Taylor as a leader. The Shannons soon discover not all the danger exists outside the walls of Terra Nova. Some of the members of their group disagree on how to save mankind and some may even be trying to destroy the new world before it can get started.

While FOX has announced the cancellation, Terra Nova is being shopped to other networks.

  • Thank God!

    I could not bear watching this show after 3 episodes. Plot and story seems like coming form a 3rd grader. Acting is very bad and characters have no depth. And what's with all that unnecessary love stories which have no sense and purpose. Thanks for canceling this no-sense soap opera.
  • All the good shows get cancelled

    I just discovered Terra Nova and have been really enjoying it. As others have said, it does seem like the TV executives love to kill the most interesting shows. I sure hope that some other smarter outlet picks up Terra Nova. Netflix, why don't you pick it up? You seem to have a knack for winners lately.

    It was an amazing show! I really got into it! I have only ever seen it on netflix but it was amazing! They need to keep going with it! Please keep going with it!!
  • Good show

    Everytime I like a good show like terra nova they get cancelled. But they keep all the gay and female shows?? Come on. I cancelled my cable because there is nothing on worth watching, and if they are, I just watch it online or download it. No need for cable anymore. Save me a little money and time from the crap they put on tv anymore.
  • To bad

    Yet another great show cancelled.
